What licensing do you have? We’re licensed by the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) in the state of Washington.
Why do you work with children? I would have to say that creating for, and teaching, children is far more than a job for me—it’s my life calling.
Why do you think environment is so important? Studies have shown that a natural environment affects one’s creative thinking skills and is essential for children (and adults) to grow intellectually, as well as in spirit.
How do you make learning fun? There is too much to say in a few words! First, we offer an emerging curriculum both indoors and out of doors. Studies have shown this to be the best way of teaching. Our curriculum is both child- led and teacher led while continually being prepared to captivate each child’s attention. Our environment is both play and nature- based offering opportunities in abundance! Each child is met where they are at and assisted in ways that inspire and enhance their life skills, knowledge, interests, talents, and gifts. At Village Learning, most importantly, each child’s learning stems from desire!
